Within walking distance of university hospitals and CWRU campus. Very good service by knowledgeable and attentive wait staff. Food is quite good and decent wine list. Is also within walk of Severence Hall. I recommend highly and will visit again when in area.

We picked Michaelangelo's for a nice birthday dinner. I had been there before, and the food, service, and ambiance were great,
We had an eggplant appetizer (my friend is a vegetarian) that was delicious and large enough to share. I ordered the gnocchi with a hazelnut pesto sauce, but the sauce was very bland. My friend ordered a drunken goat cheese pasta that was amazing.
The service was excellent with a very attentive server, and the wine list was pretty extensive. Overall, it was an excellent experience.

Very disappointed. Have not been in a few years and will not go back. Ignored after being seated so we had to flag a waiter, waited again for water, menus. Had to ask about specials. Took forever for anything to arrive. One in our party ordered well done pork chop and it arrived barely cooked. Took some time to flag someone down and ask for it to be cooked. Entire party was finished with their entrees before the pork chop was returned to table by manager. When questioned about all that occurred to this point manager developed an unprofessional attitude and responses. Not what you would expect from a higher quality restaurant. The executive chef/owner's name and phone were asked for on the way out and hopefully a discussion with him will provide better results.
The only positive to take away was that the food (other than the uncooked pork chop) and wine was very good. What a shame.

There was an older woman and a younger girl at the front desk. They were not very friendly. Nobody welcomed us to the establishment. We were a half hour early for our reservations and the place was empty. She said our table wasn't ready. We asked if we could have a drink at the bar and wait. The younger girl said she would come get us. Same thing with the bartender. She told us we couldn't sit where we were sitting and we waited over 5 minutes at an empty bar for her to serve us drinks. To the bartenders credit she did become much friendlier however she never came back to check on us. The rude young girl from the front came back and sat us. I was wearing a dress (very obviously mind you) and she asked if I wanted a black napkin due to my "pants" I figured as much about offering me the napkin as she should but the way she said it was super rude and the whole thing was awkward. However from then on out we had an alright time. The food was absolutely amazing. We both got the filet. Excellent. However the service wasn't what I would have expected from such a restaurant. Luckily the food was so amazing but I have had much much much better experiences else where. For the amount of money we spent I just wished there was something a bit extra. The dining room is nice and clean but nothing spectacular. Come for the food!

Michaelangelo's was the quintessential experience for Cleveland's Little Italy neighborhood. The pastas are hand-made, the wine list is huge and the staff is extremely knowledgeable. This in an authentic and very classy-upscale Italian restaurant. The menu is extensive, yet very original. This place is classy and perfect for a romantic date. It offers ample parking as well. Definitely worth the price. The food was incredible. Would definitely recommend to friends and come back again!

Greatly disappointed that this restaurant which had long been my favorite spot for treating special friends to celebratory Lunches is no longer open for such. Food is always superior. The ambiance is charming. Prices are a bit high but in keeping with the quality. Service is adequate.

We tried Michelangelo's on the recommendation of locals. Our take: pretentious white-tablecloth, been here forever place. The whole experience just felt stuffy. Overall the food was good. Large portions on pasta dishes, and I appreciated the option for 1/2 order of pasta. Lots of wine options both by the glass and by the bottle. If you're looking for creative Italian or old school casual red-sauce Italian, go somewhere else.

General Manager not polite or friendly . Spends to much time in the bar area socializing with his regulars and doesn't come around and ask about your meal or service. BTW......waiter service very slow. Assistant waiter service poor also, had to request waters and refills not to mention bread in a Italian restaurant........hello! Empty plates left sitting on the table while waiting for desert menus. Use to be a regular not anymore. The restaurant appears to be riding on it's laurels. Final note; the restaurant wasn't busy either.

Summary: The food is still very good but everything else leaves a bad taste in your mouth! :(

Ah... Pasta. I am not a fan of pasta. This place makes amazeballs pasta. The food was ridiculously good. Mussels in an exceptionally flavorful sauce. Mushroom tortellini was completely outstanding. The bread / oil has a touch of balsamic in it, best in Cleveland hands down. I lived in Italy for a year and I have not eaten Italian food this good since then. The prices are well worth it and they are what you would expect for this level of quality dining.

It's hard to believe that I've lived in greater Cleveland my whole life and have passed Michaelangelo's on countless occasions, yet I had never paid them a visit until recently. Needless to say, I'm quite glad that I did! This fine establishment embodies the art of elegance and accentuates the standards for fine dining! The menu is varied of Northern Italian fare, which is abundant in quality choices that vary from minestrone to meat dishes, all of which are expertly prepared and taste decadent. The wine list is expansive in selection and offers reds and whites from every corner of the globe. Even more impressive is the fact that complimentary fresh baked bread is brought to the table with an olive oil tapenade. Lastly, for desert you can't leave without enjoying a tempting square of tiramisu - it's heaven on a plate! While the prices here are a bit on the high end, the quality and ample portion sizes make it well-worth the money spent. At Michaelangelo's you truly do get what you pay for, and then some.

We love coming to Michaelangelo's - we have come for years each time we visit Cleveland. Food, ambiance, service, all 5-star in our books. Missed Johnny this visit, hopefully we see him next time.

Dinner with my lovely wife...the bar area is intimate but the larger area was pretty bright until lights were finally dimmed. The service was very good and the duck ravioli with orange was wonderful.
